Dog Training Workshops at Cosmos

I am very excited to announce that we have the go ahead to run a new set of Dog Training Workshops at the Cosmos center in St Andrews. The workshops are designed to provide the foundation work for incredible communication skills, focus and fun!

This is a opportunity for you to learn how to effectively train your dog!

The next block of 6 classes will begin on Wednesday 23rd January at 7.30 pm with the final class being 27th February 2019.

Why Dog Training Workshops?

The workshops are for anyone who feels they would benefit from guidance in developing an enjoyable and rewarding relationship with their dog. It's perfect if you would like to learn how to build focus around distractions, learn how to build a good recall, problem solve common issues like pulling, jumping up, and barking. The worshops will provide information and resources on how to achieve these tasks with your dog, the best equipment to use, how to encorporate enrichment in their lives and keep everyone healthy and happy. When you sign up for the workshops you will be provided with the weekly topic breakdown which will detail what you will learn in the coming weeks and what you can expect to achieve.

What age are the classes for?

Dogs older than 16 weeks, puppies younger than this can join the puppy class Puppy

My dog is aggressive, can we still come?

Sorry no - The worshops are for quiet, friendly dogs. Private help is available for dogs that need help socialising, please use the contact page to get help.

My dog is shy, can we still come?

Yes you can, being in a friendly dog class can help build confidence

When are the classes?

The classes are at 7.30pm

How much are the classes?

The classes are run in a 6 week block, payable in advance, the cost is £60 per dog.

Do I have to come to every class?

The short answer is yes, the workshops have a set curriculum with a different topic covered each week. However life can sometimes get in the way of all the best plans, so time will be set aside for a quick catch up if you do miss a class.

What will we learn?

Basic obedience, working with distractions, building focus, behaviour shaping, using markers, training games, enrichment, capturing calm behaviours. The last class will be an assessment of your achievements with a certificate of award.

Dog Walking

Bringing home a new puppy is so exciting! The trouble is, they have small bladders and the best way to prevent accidents is to provide plenty of toilet breaks in the appropriate place. During their early months, good habits have to be learned. Your puppy needs consistency, routine and attention. Not to worry! As dedicated and reliable dog walker I will customize a drop in session for feeding, exercise and toileting just for your pup. This is suitable for pups up to 8 months old.
